Bob Marley: One Love continues to dominate the box office.

The Paramount biopic will remain No. 1 on this week’s domestic box office chart. The film, starring Kingsley Ben-Adir as the late reggae icon, will earn an estimated $13.4 million to $14 million from 3,597 locations, according to early weekend estimates provided to The Hollywood Reporter.


One Love has already crossed the $100 million mark ($61.4 million domestically and $39.7 million overseas) at the global box office after only 10 days in theaters.

The Marley movie, which opened on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14), topped the box office chart last week with a six-day launch of $51.1 million, marking one of the best openings for a music biopic, according to THR. Straight Outta Comptonremains at the top of the list with a $60.2 million opening in North America in 2015.

Sony’s Madame Web, starring Dakota Johnson, debuted with a gloomy $26 million opening, one of the lowest openings for a movie mentioning a Marvel character, according to THR. The film is not, however, considered part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

One Love covers the dynamic between Marley, his backing band The Wailers and the musician’s family in the year immediately following an assassination attempt on his life. Rounded out by a cast that includes Lashana Lynch as Rita Marley and James Norton as producer and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, the movie aims to humanize a man whose talent and message caused him to, in many ways, transcend mortality.

Marley’s songs have garnered a whopping seven billion official on-demand U.S. streams, per Luminate, while his Legend compilation is the second-longest charting album in Billboard 200 history (821 weeks).
